Readings, news, voting!! and more

Literary Democracy

The ScotiaBank Giller Prize is adding a Readers Choice Contest through CBC - you can win pretty cool prizes just for entering! You choose a book to vote for and write a sentence or 2 about why you are voting for it. Mine is one of the choices.

The link is below to get to the CBC page with the info and link to voting. The deadline is Aug 28 - you have more chances of winning prizes the sooner you enter though. Perhaps you will consider voting for To the Edge of the Sea by yours truly. Or there are a whole raft of wonderful books - and great prizes.

Much thanks and happy voting!

Farini at Niagara Falls (in 1864 that is) - my latest on Christopher Moore's History News

How different is it from today? Well mind you, Farini was allowed to do what he wanted at Niagara Falls, it was Momorency Falls in Quebec that he was turned down at, or maybe it was because of who he planned to take with him.
